Saw a picture of a 380 cup that had caught fire at the rear, don’t know if it was the exhaust or not. One other 380 owner melted the diffuser, stock exhaust too. Have seem some photos of horrible riveted on shields on the inside of the diffusers.

looks  wry short those tail pipes.

 

 

cheers

Barry, since I can speak Japanese I communicated with them directly. They specifically told me that if the car were to be used for the track, they will not sell me the exhaust because it will destroy itself due to the heat. The system sounds fantastic yes, which is also why i wanted one, but clearly this means that the incredible sound is from suppressing the air passing through it in such a way that is generating higher heat. Exercise caution with it.
